    Aldermans ascent

    Hi all!

    I just want to plug this race which is being held by Saddleworth Rangers Rugby League Club. Its a fundraiser for the youth teams so there are Junior Races held as well.

    Its the second year of running and we also have a brand new club house to host from.

    So, make a note in on your calendar for Thursday 6th July. Juniors start at 6.30 and seniors start at 7.30. More info via the link below.....

    All prize givings will be held at the brand new club house with free soup and bread or hotdogs. Bar, of course, will be available.

    With just over 2 weeks to go, why not give Aldermans Ascent a go!

    Entries go towards the Junior Rugby teams. We've got Junior Races and registration over at Binn Green Car Park starting at 6.30 and the Senior race starting at 7.30 on Churchill Playing Fields (Registration at the club House).

    Everyone back to the new club House for the presentation where the kids have free hot dogs and the seniors have free soup and bread. More info on the website..http://www.saddleworthrangers.co.uk/aldermans-ascent

    Please try and support! Cheers

    Thanks to all runners who turned up for Thursdays race. The weather was fantastic, although a tad too warm, and the atmosphere back at the club house after the races was great! We ended up with 98 juniors on the night and 63 seniors. Many many thanks for those who turned out. I'll post links to the results and photos soon. Provisional date for next years race is Thursday 5th July. See you all then!

    I have just viewed some photographs of todays Alderman's Ascent fell race and some of them show runners who have stopped and posed to have their photographs taken.

    Why someone would pay to enter a "race" and then do such a thing is beyond me!
    Visibility good except in Hill Fog

    Anyone jumping up and clicking their heels together should be immediately dq'd in my opinion.... (or preferably machine-gunned down as they cross the finish line)

    Well not everybody is a "pot hunter" you know!

    For some people the pleasure is sharing the sense of camaraderie, embracing the joy of sport, taking in the views and smelling the flowers.

    Or so I've been told.

    Can't understand that twaddle myself - but what do I know?

    Even giving a thumbs up is a bit infa dig in my humble opinion. Smacks of mud/paint run; very non U as Ms Mitford would say.
